Police have confirmed that a man who was taken ill after taking drugs at Glastonbury Festival has died.
The 26-year-old was taken to hospital after a suspected reaction to the class B drug ketamine. Officers say his family has been informed.
The music gets underway on the main stages at the Glastonbury Festival later. The weather has taken a turn for the worse, with more rain forecast for today and Saturday. But one of the headline acts, Dolly Parton, says she's looking forward to performing whatever the weather.
The Glastonbury Festival is up and running. 175 thousand people are expected to descend on Michael Eavis's famous farm over the next three days.
As ever, one of the big talking points will be the weather and there is a threat of heavy showers over the Pilton site in the next 24 hours or so.
Our Somerset Correspondent David Woodland, who has experienced many festivals, will be enjoying - and enduring - the festivities along with everyone else.
